Shifting your business to the online world is a necessity today. Without an online presence, there is no chance of branching out and expanding beyond your means. This is why hiring an online business manager is a good idea. If you don’t know the online landscape yourself, then these managers will not only help you modernize, but also optimize.
Everyone has daily tasks that drain our creativity and take up valuable time in our personal and business life. You can afford an Online Business Manager and get the support you need when you need it. When you’re out working in the field, the last thing you want to think about is office work. We know how important it is for your clients that you’re focused on them, which is why we want to make it easier for you to manage the other aspects of your business.
What is an Online Business Manager?
An Online Business Manager, aka, OBM, in traditional office terms, is the office manager – the right hand partner to the business owner. The OBM develops ways to help the company as a whole operate more efficiently. From bookkeeping to social media, the OBM ensures employees have the tools and training they need to keep the company running at full steam.
Think about how any other company works. There’s the top dog, the business owner, the CEO, or whoever is steering the ship, and then there is a manager that keeps things running while the CEO focuses on the main direction of the business.
It’s the same with your business. You, as the CEO, are steering the business while your OBM handles the actual operations – making sure everyone is doing what needs to be done, that all systems are running properly, and that the business has everything it needs to grow, etc.
We have the experience to keep you in check, to manage operations successfully to keep you busy with work and not another crisis. We will set you up with a procedural plan that is simple to follow and when followed it reduces your overall liability as a business and even save you time with business management. Most clients we work with find between 5%-25% more time to grow their business. Ask yourself how much you want to grow and what it can look like.

When Should I Hire an Online Business Manager?
When you reach the point that you are in constant communication with your web designer, sales manager, marketing director and bookkeeper – it’s time to bring in an OBM. The OBM will bring in automated systems, productivity programs and digital project management tools that make the efforts of everyone in the company more cohesive (yes, this is when you exhale and relax!). Business is booming! Stop trying to handle the minute details of the day and work strategically to build your brand.
By freeing you up to focus on the bigger picture, an OBM can make the difference between being stuck in your current income range and pushing through to your next financial goal. By passing off the day-to-day brainwork, you are free to focus on where your business can grow, what new products and services to create, and achieving or expanding your overall mission.
It’s impossible to fulfill your potential when you constantly feel overwhelmed, overworked, and physically/mentally maxed out.
